Slide Masters govern several default attributes for your slides such as the slide background, font choices, colors, and even the positioning of the placeholders. In many ways thus, Slide Masters are the backend workers of your presentation. And even though Slide Masters in PowerPoint 2003 only include limited functionality, you can still use this functionality to either edit existing Slide Masters or even create your own Slide Master.

To make far reaching changes to your slides within PowerPoint, you should always consider making these changes within the Slide Master rather than within individual slides. Not only will this save you a load of time, but it will also make your slides look more consistent and professional.

Have you ever applied a new Slide Master to existing slides in PowerPoint, and then found that the old Slide Master just disappeared! Poof, how did that happen? The typical answer to that question is your existing Slide Master was not “preserved”, and since no slides used it anymore, PowerPoint just decided to clean it up altogether. So if you don’t want this to happen again, then you must preserve your Slide Masters.

Adding a new Slide Master to your presentation is easy, and an even easier way is to possibly duplicate an existing Slide Master. You can then format it to change its look by applying a Background Style or by adding a custom background. You can also add new Slide Layouts, etc. But why would you do all these tasks in the first place?

Once you have applied a template within PowerPoint that has multiple masters, you can thereafter apply different Slide Masters to the slides in your presentation. Assume that your presentation already has multiple masters available. Having said so, the reason why you want to apply multiple masters is preferably only to have sets of slides that look a we bit different rather than ending up with something that’s inconsistent. Ultimately the role of masters is to ensure that your presentation remains consistent in design, layout and form.

Every presentation you create has its own Slide Master, even if you are not aware. This Master governs the default attributes of all slides in your presentation such as the background, font choices, colors, and even the positioning of the placeholders. This makes all your slides look consistent. However, even then some sets of slides within the same presentation may have disparate slide elements. So, you may have some slides that are governed by one Slide Master and other slides that are governed by a completely different Slide Master!

While all the Masters that PowerPoint 2003 provides can make it easier for you to create consistent looking slides, there may be times when these Masters will not live up to your expectations. And it is important for you to be aware of these “caveats”, so that you don’t run into big problems without being aware!

PowerPoint allows you to print Notes pages. These contain the notes that you may have saved within the Notes pane for all your individual slides. Unless you modify the Notes Master, your printed Notes pages may look basic. The Notes Master is one of the four Masters within PowerPoint. This Master enables you to modify the appearance of your Notes pages, especially how they will look when you print them.

Handouts are presentation accompaniments that are almost always intended for print. It is a good idea to distribute handouts before your PowerPoint presentation’s delivery so that the audience can follow along the presentation. If you don’t do so, you may certainly want to carry handouts with you to distribute as takeaways for your audience. You can control the look of your handouts by formatting the Handout Master. This can be useful if you want to include a graphic such as a logo on each page of your handout.
